England

Boston - The City Of Lincoln & the Cathedral (full day)

Your tour today takes you to the City of Lincoln which rises dramatically on a cliff above the River Witham. Steeped in history and at one time the fourth most important city in England after London, Winchester and York you can see remains from the past all over the city.

Enjoy a walking tour of the city with your guide and see the Jew’s House which is an early 12th century stone house and one of the oldest of its kind in existance, Lincoln Castle which also acted as the city prison from 1787-1878, Ruins of Bishop’s Palace and the statue of Alfred Lord Tennyson to name but a few.

Of course one of the highlights of today will be a visit to Lincoln Cathedral which is one of England’s largest and dates from 1072 although only some of the original structure can be seen today. The rest was destroyed by fire in 1141. The majority of the Cathedral now dates from the 13th and 14th centuries.

Afterward enjoy some time at leisure for independent sightseeing and lunch before returning to your ship later this afternoon.
